TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Two more teenagers were in custody Wednesday in connection with a deadly shooting outside of a Temple Walmart store that was the result of a plan to rob a marijuana dealer, police said.

Warrants charging murder were issued on Saturday for Rashari Brent, 18, and Chelsea Swint, 18, in connection with the Dec. 5 shooting that claimed the life of Isaac Kohlhaas, 18.

Brent is in custody in Richland County, S.C., and Swint, whom U.S. Marshals arrested on Tuesday, is jailed in Fort Collins, Colo., police said.

Extradition of both is pending, police said Wednesday.

Two 16-year-old girls have also been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the shooting

Their names weren’t released because of their ages.

One of them told officers that “Swint and Brent were discussing robbing a weed dealer and set someone up to be robbed,” an arrest warrant affidavit released Wednesday says.

The shooting was reported at around 9:45 p.m. Dec. 5 at the store at 6801 West Adams Ave.

Officers found Kohlhaas with a gunshot wound.

A bag of marijuana was found underneath him, the affidavit says.

Surveillance video showed the victim’s vehicle pulling into a parking spot at the Walmart and then a dark colored sedan that Swint was driving pulling in at an angle close to Kohlhaas’ car, the affidavit says.

The video shows two people identified in the affidavit as Brent and one of the 16-year-old girls getting out of the dark-colored vehicle and into the victim’s car and then getting out and running back to the sedan as Kohlhaas got out of his vehicle and collapsed, the affidavit said.

He was taken to Scott & White Medical Center, where he later died.

One of the 16-year-old girls turned herself in just before 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7.

The other was arrested an hour later at her home in the 1700 block of South 15th Street.

Both were taken to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center in Killeen.

Both teens are charged with murder.

The case is still under investigation.
